Today started slowly: reading a little from the book of James, while drinking creamy coffee and listening to piano music. The children were all engrossed in playing Legos in their rooms (pink ones for Addie, of course), and even the dogs were quiet.
It has been raining, rainy, or about to rain for the last week, and it makes for mellow mornings around here. (It also makes for misery with three large dogs, but I'll take the rain anyway.) Our school year is winding down, my project is 95% complete, and I'm eyeing a long summer's nap soon. Oddly enough, I get slow and meditative in the summer, and by mid-July my productivity screeches to a halt. All I want to do is read. The only way I can keep our home on track is to religiously stick to my cleaning routine and never allow myself to move on to any other activity before the dishes are finished. Things fall apart quickly here, and it always starts with dishes in the sink.
But today the dishes are done for the morning, the children have finished their chores, and all that's left on the list is to run by a friend's house with Caiden's egg delivery. I foresee a long nap coming soon, and an hour in the armchair with a good book, at this rate. It's shaping up to be a perfect Saturday!
